I am needing to know if anybody uses a Reflow oven Chain oil that doesn't create a horrible smell. Whenever we put this oil on it burns off and smells like I am stuck at a stop light behind a car with bad rings. I have looked at several oils that advertise "high temp, good to 200C" our reflow oven is running above that due to our Lead-Free process.

When we bought our Heller reflow oven, the installation technician recommended using Oberon chain lube part # 680784(0) when we needed to purchase more oil for our chain. I just went to the oberonlube.com website and could not find that part number. (The part number may be a Heller number.) What I did find was Oberon part # F232 which is a high temperature synthetic base chain oil. From the description there it looks like it should work for reflow ovens.

FYI: This seems to be worse depending on the oven....I think it may have to do with the way the machine exhaust. I have used the Fuchs on our Omniflow and on our XPM's.(Pb Free profiles) The Omniflow stinks the whole shop up....the Vitronics do not smell at all.

Saw George Carlin this weekend, I think he was talking about Fuch's lubricant.

We use Biral B10-30. It smokes and smells the first time the oven heats up after oiling the chain. What we do is open up the windows and turn on a floor fan so the smoke blows out.

I talked to someone regarding the Biral oil and they said that they have had a problem with it "jelling up" when exposed to oxegen. Has this been a problem for you as well? I ordered some Stabylyn 773ND from Vitronics. I hope this stuff works for 57.00 bucks a pint.... Thanks to all, wayne

The Biral is supposed to gel up. Thats what keeps it from dripping off. It's kinda like motorcycle chain oil in that regard.
